The 1998 64 Queenship “BONKERS” can be easily boarded via her oversized swim platform. Not many boats feature a platform this large. This platform is the perfect launching port for a whole host of watersports activities. Diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, you name it and BONKERS can accommodate. Standing on the platform you have a watertight door center line that will lead below to crew accommodations and engine room. She features a Euro style transom with dual stairwells and safety gates on either side leading up to the aft deck.
The expansive aft deck looks gorgeous with a new teak deck added in 2018. She features split forward-facing seating with a Corian tabletop. From here you can access the interior through two sliding panoramic doors, take the starboard side ladder up the fly bridge or transit the bow by her modified walk around side decks. Her functionality is perfect as both a couple’s cruiser and a crewed vessel. Additional aft deck highlights include….
Entering the main salon from the aft deck you are instantly stuck by her cleanliness, beautiful high gloss teak woodwork, tasteful décor, and interior volume. Her custom IK Yacht Design interior shows exceptionally well with new carpet, recovered sofa, coffee table, stylish chairs, and custom lighting features. Her comfortable sofa sits to port with an aft seating chair. To stbd aft is a matching chair. The stbd side of the salon is high gloss teak cabinetry and exceptional storage.

The original island queen berth was custom extended on the port side to make her larger while still allowing for the ability to get outboard to make the bed. A private master head and tons of storage make for a great liveaboard vessel or at least a very comfortable stateroom for long term cruising adventures. Other master stateroom highlights include….

The aft half of the bridge with her 13.5” Novurania on board is utilitarian in nature. There is a hydraulic davit for launch and retrieval. With the tender down this aft bridge area could be transformed into additional social seating or even sun space. The fwd. half of the bridge has a center walkway flanked by two storage cabinets. She boasts the must hardtop option with great weather protection from 3 sides of isinglass enclosure. The two wing panels roll up for air flow if desired. Her seating areas are split port and stbd with L shaped Sunbrella fabric cushions, each side having their own cocktail table. There is a single center line mounted captains chair just aft of the helm. Visibility from the helm is excellent. BONKERS features an updated top of the line GARMIN electronics package to assist in navigation and communications during shipboard journeys.

Immediately to stbd there is a large crew berth suitable for two if needed. This area has individual AC and climate controls. To port are storage cabinets and drawers. Outboard there is a sink and wash basin with a crew head.
Through another watertight door is the engine room. The engine room on BONKERS is a thing of beauty.

Well laid out with ship systems accessible and serviceable.
